Silly Conversations

I have this conversation a lot too. I am constantly amazed at the volume of silly conversations I have when training people. People have a lot of mental blocks to doing hard work. I have them. I come up with lots of excuses to not work out on a given day. You have probably heard a bunch and maybe even uttered a few excuses yourself. “It’s too heavy.” “I don’t want to bulk up.” “I can’t lift because I have a weak back.” I think it is human to try to weasel out of hard work, but the real trick is recognizing it and not letting the excuses take hold. Please post some of your techniques for combating those useless excuses.
